are now elected lgbt peep to office and harvey was such an incredible trail blazer, not? in just getting elected, but in being a great leader and always holding his head high for our community. and i know when i was first sworn into office, one of the things that i always kept in mind was something that i understand harvey to have said, * that when you go into city hall, you walk up the central staircase. you don't walk on one of the side staircases because for our community, it is so important for us to walk up that central staircase and for us to be in the middle of everything and for everyone to know that we are here. and all these years later, we've made a lot of strides in the lgbt community, but we still have so much work to do around hiv issues, around our youth, around discrimination, around transinclusion, and all the things that we know that harvey had he been here today would still be working on and leading on. and, so, we have to keep doing our work. and frankly, we can't take for granted that queer people are going to keep getting elected to office if we don't work on that

is that of dedication to family and dedication to his community. much more beyond being an elected office, having some sort of title. i think the title he cared most about was father, grandfather, brother, cousin. his family was so absolutely important to him. i read through his obituary, and it reminds me to some extent of how i felt after i wrote and read my father's own obituary in but it doesn't come close to really saying who this man was. mike gave his entire life to his brother and sister, both as family, but also when i say that i mean collectively, his entire society. truly someone who will be missed dearly. his wife of 45 years, kathleen, his three children, one of whom is a member of our own police department, lt. mike nevin. a great man who leaves a great legacy, not just in san mateo county but throughout the region. i know i can say it on behalf of everyone here, his family is.ln sent our deepest condolences. >> presidencondolences if we could -- >> president chiu: if we could adjourn as a board for mike nevin and kay gulbengay. >> clerk calvillo: supervisor campos. >> supervisor campos
